Geocoding spatial data with tidygeocoder in R

In previous posts I have demonstrated how to geocode location strings using the Open Street Map API in two different ways. The first approach was to implement a function that sents a string to the OSM API directly, using http. The API then returns spatial coordinates in json-format. The second approach was to use the […]

Geocoding with osmdata in R

In a previous post I demonstrated how one can generate map-based heatmap distribution plots using the Leaflet package in R. In that example I implemented a function that sends locations as strings to a Open Street Map API and then receives latitude and longitude coordinates as return values in JSON-format. In this post I will […]

Spatial SCM data visualisation in R

In this post I want to provide a brief overview of useful packages in R for visualizing spatial data in R. The packages discussed are webglobe, deckgl, ggmap, ggplot2 and Leaflet. webglobe The webglobe package allows you to create e.g. bar charts on a 2D or 3D map. You can view your visualisation in your […]
